Rare Double Sided Hanging Neon Clock and Thermometer by Glo-Dial

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

We have had many neon clocks and signs over the years, but this is one that never turns up! Made to hang over a storefront and be seen from both sides, most of these simply had a clock face on both sides. On ours, one side reads "Glo-Dial Time", and one reads "Glo-Dial Temp". The clock body is an impressive 3 feet in diameter, and the added pole on the top gives it a 4 foot dimension from top to bottom. The clock and neon are all in Fine working condition. The thermometer is currently showing zero degrees, but we will have it looked at and adjusted when we are able to pull it down.
